Overview

Season one of the animated series Justice League opens with the three-part "Secret Origins," which explains the reason that the League is formed and establishes the principal players. Duped into disarming the Earth's warheads, veteran superhero Superman is aghast when a fleet of bug-like space aliens attacks the Earth, led on by the traitorous Senator J. Allen Carter. Flying to the orbiting space-station headquarters of Batman, Superman and his fellow crime-fighter try to mount a strong defense against the extraterrestrials, only to discover that it is too much of a job for just the two of them. Thus is formed the mighty Justice League, comprised of Superman and Batman's comic-book confreres the Green Lantern, the Flash, Wonder Woman, and Hawkgirl -- with added backup from a new member of the gang, the telepathic, shape-shifting Martian Manhunter (aka J'onn J'onnz). Once the alien insects are thwarted, the Justice League embarks upon several new adventures, most of them unfolding in two-part story arcs. Though the League members are united in a common cause, there is a certain amount of friction, rivalry, and envy amongst them -- just like any "normal" exclusive club. Featured in the series' 26 are a number of characters who will be familiar to any fan of the original Justice League comic-book line, including underwater superhero Aquaman; Wonder Woman's mother, Hippolyta, and erstwhile boyfriend Steve Trevor; black crime-fighter Virgil "Static Shock" Hawkins; and Sgt. Rock (of Easy Company). Several infamous villains also make appearances, among them Superman's perennial nemesis Lex Luthor (who at one point organizes a rival team of bad guys called The Injustice Guild), Batman's longtime enemy the Joker (whose voice is reprised by Mark Hamill), and such reprehensible reprobates as Brainiac, Mordred, Star Sapphire, the Shade, and the simian criminal genius Grodd. The season ends with the three-part adventure "The Savage Time," wherein six Justice League members are transported back to D-day during World War 2!

    Great nostalgia DVD

    Super Hero TV shows at it's best. Some of the shows have excellent replay value. The writing takes a lot of elements from the comics, the voice acting is excellent (Tim Daly, Phil LaMarr, Kevin Conroy). If you grew up reading about these characters, you should really enjoy this DVD. Personally, I liked the follow-on series, Justice League Unlimited more, but the original Justice League is a great way to start.

    Justice League Season One

    For starters I have to say "WOW" this show is truly amazing in almost every single way. I enjoyed it from start to finsh, and the commentary just adds to it greatness. I loved the gueststars such as Mark Hamill(formly known as Luke Skywalker)as The Joker in the two part episode of "Injustice For All" and I also liked the two part episode "Legends" when the Justice League went into an alternet universe were they met a group called the Justice Guild of America(JGA) in which the group is a spinoff of the real life comic book characters of the Justice League of America(JLA). This show is a must buy if you love comic books or if you are just an action fan.

    Season 1

    I watched this show as a kid, and I still like it. The animation doesn't seem as good as I remembered, but that's to be expected. I especially liked the "A Savage Time" trilogy episodes, and I got a real kick out of seeing Steve Trevor in the series. I highly recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of D.C. or even just a fan of action cartoons, even though some of the humor was rather corny. Very, very good.
